Festival Postponed

The Eastern Cape Festival of Racing scheduled for this weekend has been postponed to Friday, 23 November and Sunday, 25 November 2012.

The decision was taken after 250mm of rain fell in the four days up to Tuesday this week and with 325mm in the previous seven days.

Phumelela Racing Executive Patrick Davis confirmed that the rain had reached ‘flood proportions’ and that the decision had been made in the best interests of all stakeholders.
